Firefox Mobile Pre-Alpha Now Available for VGA Windows Mobile Phones

Just as Mozilla’s developer wiki cryptically promised last week, a pre-alpha build of Firefox Mobile ‘Fennec’ has been made available for the HTC Touch Pro, though it’ll work on many other VGA (480×640) WinMo phones.


The build is very rough and probably not usable for day-to-day browsing—early reports suggest that the loading time is very long, and that page loading is quite slow—but it should provide a glimpse of where Firefox Mobile is headed, how it will render pages and if its novel control scheme is usable on a device smaller than the N810.

The CAB download is available here, but I had no luck launching the app on my T-Mobilised HTC Touch Diamond variant. Let us know about your successes and failures in the comments. [WMExperts via Slashphone]
